Current Employee - Marketing/Advertising in Newport News, VA
Current Employee - Marketing/Advertising in Newport News, VA
Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Decent promotion opps if you area male. If you are female, forget it.

Cons

Non-family (or life-) friendly place to work due to hours expected/required. Management SAYS they are family friendly, but try to work a regular 45 week - not going to happen. Pay for entry and mid-level professionals is lower than most locally-owned business. Coupled witht the hours expected, make it hard to recommend as a place to work.

Advice to Management

Set realistic expecations for work hours/schedules, pay at least what other local businesses pay their professionals (if you want to keep soem ofthe staff you have left). Do not expect people to do 2 - 4 jobs while paying them for the equivalent of /2 of one!.

    Pros

    good stable job if you worked hard you were rewarded for what you did morale was usually good and the warehouse team worked well together

    schedules were not always family friendly some of the branch upper management catered only to the sales staff and the warehouse staff were not treated well at all at times

    Advice to Management

    be aware that the entire facility is a team not just the sales every is important in the organization to make it successful

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Name recognition. The company is the largest of its kind, but mainly now through acquisition of smaller competitors. Competition is there but very few can match the resources of FEI.

    Cons

    Leadership is very distrusting of employees. It is difficult if not impossible to get accolades for going beyond job description. The communication between management and emploees is mostly limited to criticism and demand for compliance.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that the front line employees make it possible for the sales and management people to get ahead.
